Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop -- Day 4

Welcome to the MFP November Blog Hop!

While I’m not officially part of the Blog Candy hop today, thanks for stopping by and looking at my projects.

We have 4 New Stamp Sets Released: Hearts, Hearts, Hearts; Nature’s Postage; Hello, Sunshine; and Take a Peek. For your convenience, all 4 stamp sets are available for purchase TODAY!

For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, (a set that will be released NEXT month), visit and comment on each of the design team members' blogs TODAY. On Saturday, (December 11, 2010), a winner will be chosen from those participants who visited all the blogs listed for today. (There will be four different winners, one winner for each day of the blog hop. You DO NOT have to comment every day. However, the more days you comment, the more chances you have to win!) If you miss a day, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning!

We end the Blog Hop with Take a Peek.

I don’t do CAS cards well, so this is my lame attempt. I stamped the hedgehog image onto white cardstock and then embossed the square around it. I had some digital wood DP that I thought would make a nice background. I added some twine and wooden beads. I'll probably have to hand-deliver this card because I don't think those beads will mail well!

This cute little raccoon peeking out from the bouquet of flowers is stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia and colored with Copic markers. I ran the ribbon between the plain and scalloped octagonal shapes and added a little charm. I’m always in need of birthday cards, so that’s the sentiment I used from this set, which has a total of NINE sentiments.

My son gave me these cute little honey bears quite a while ago. I'm not sure what the honey pot would hold -- toothpicks, maybe.

Be sure to visit the rest of the team to see what they did with this set and comment on each of the participating members’ blogs. You have one more chance to win one of the stamp sets to be released next month.

Here is the Blog Hop LINE UP for today:

I love the layout of the hedgie with the beads, and the dbl scalloping of the raccoon card. Lois, you always have great ideas. TFS!

Love the bead embellishment and the layered nesties on the second!

Emily Keaton said...

You've colored these critters adorably. Nicely done, Lois!!

The hedgie card is NOT 'lame' - it's a wonderful CAS card! The beads work well, look great, but I agree the card had best go to someone who you can hand it to. The raccoon card is nice, too, but the hedgie is my favorite.
